The rumors were true. Gyllene Tider has reunited to make the Swedish anthem together with Linnea Henriksson for this summer’s soccer adventures in Russia. Together with Linnea they perform “Bäst när det gäller” which is released in conjunction with the press conference where the Swedish team will be presented today, May 15.
– Writing the official song is of course an enormous challenge which you can’t turn down. All of Sweden, yes all of the world is deeply engaged in the world soccer championships so we were enormously proud to be asked, says Per Gessle on the Swedish Soccer Federation’s website.
Gyllene Tider hasn’t performed together since the 2013 tour, a tour where Linnea Henriksson also participated as the Support Act. Now both of Halmstad’s Pop Pride and Joy reunite together with Swedish manager Janne Andersson – who’s also from Halmstad – in order to help the team reach huge success.
